Why it is important to interact with outdoor spaces

Outdoor spaces bring many benefits to people living with dementia. From something as simple as the feeling of fresh air, all the way to memory recall and reminiscence. Creating a safe space full of bright sights, sounds and smells can really be a beautiful and effective way of maximising feelings of independent living with the condition at home, or in care. Just as with interior design, utilising the exterior and outdoor spaces can have massive therapeutic and cognitive benefits.
